When I first spotted this graphic on Nina Hollander's post, I knew I needed to snatch it. (Thank you, Nina.) In part because this chart tells the story so clearly and illustrates what is wrong with real estate inventory, not only in Sacramento right now, but across the country (courtesy of NAR). ...

 The official word is it was 106 in Sacramento on Sunday, and the last time it was anywhere close to that, it was 105 in the year 1945. The heat wave came really fast and early in the season. Our weather is all messed up, and it's probably due to climate change. Usually we don't see weather this ...

 Somewhere, there are a lot of people who love their timeshares, I just don't know any of them. I know my sister previously listed her timeshare at Whitebirch at Breezy Point, Minnesota, with the real estate company that sells timeshares there, and she insists the person who took her listing told...

 Just because I used the back yard photo, do not assume that the front photo of this new listing in North Highlands isn't attractive -- because the home does possess a lot of curb appeal -- it's that the back yard is even more spectacular. It's very hard to find homes this well maintained with su...

 Don't get me wrong, I love working on all of my listings or I wouldn't accept them. But every once in every blue moon, I take a listing that truly speaks to me, and this home in Carmichael is such a place. It is special. This is not a cookie cutter home in Elk Grove. It is one-of-a-kind. Tons of...

 My clients are from Russian descent, the sellers who sold their condo that closed yesterday in Riva on the River in West Sacramento. I could tell at our first meeting that they held a high level of expectations, not only from their Realtor but they also hold their own actions accountable and com...

 There were many things that were odd about the UPS phone scam calls I received yesterday. They seemed to be going out of their way to make sure they were covering all of their tracks and camouflaging their scam attempts. It was also peculiar that they called my office. Further, they freely ackno...

 As long as the purchase offer exceeds a seller's asking price, which is fairly common in a hot seller's market in Sacramento right now, many sellers tend to look to their agent to choose the purchase offer. I've had sellers come right out and ask me to select. They'll say, Oh, these are all abou...

 My husband still recalls the disparaging term he used to describe the sellers of our house, based on the state from which they hailed, primarily because they refused to leave when we first toured our home. If they hadn't been there, he would not have made judgments about them. And judgments can ...

 Anybody can take title to a home when buying. Rick and Morty could take title to a home. It's the home selling that can get people into hot water. You've got to be a real entity and you've got to have your wits about you to sell a home in Sacramento. Sellers who are incapacitated are not legally...
